He shows considerable difficulty with tactile modalities, which includes keyboards and certain types of paper textures, although he has learned to adapt by using a pen to turn the pages of a book. Alex also uses visual modality effectively by reading what is written on the white board and processes this information in the same manner he does auditory information.

In most schools explicit instruction of reading skills begins at the elementary level and is gradually phased out throughout the middle school years, with high school students receiving little if any instructional support that builds further reading skills.

    The precipitates are crystalline and can be produced with good characteristics of filterability and washability. Dimethylglyoxime gives a bright red precipitate of Ni(C4H7O2N2)2 with nickel(II) solutions.
